Felix Krückels now Lawo’s Business Development Director
Krückels graduated from the renowned University of Music in Detmold/Germany as Dipl.-Tonmeister, and subsequently worked as full-time sound engineer, mainly in OB trucks. He continues to work as a sound engineer for particularly ambitious broadcast productions (he is currently in Sochi for a high-profile sports event). In this way, he is able to remain in direct contact with the industry, and conversant with the requirements and trends in modern TV and radio production.
Felix Krückels commented: ‘The Broadcast market requires more and more comprehensive, integrated solutions. Audio and video merge more and more – and that IP networks will be used for signal distribution is beyond doubt, due to the indisputable benefits. Lawo is already using the IP-based RAVENNA network technology in its products. To amalgamate these new developments and technologies is an exciting challenge, and one that I am ready to meet.’
Lawo designs and manufactures pioneering audio and video technology for TV and radio broadcast production, post-production, as well as live performance and theatrical applications. Products include digital audio mixing consoles, routers, video processing tools as well as IP-based video and audio transport solutions. All products are developed and manufactured according to highest quality standards at the company’s headquarters in the Rhine valley town of Rastatt, Germany.
